ADUR WORLD OCEANS DAY
Understanding and celebrating our marine environment
Adur will be one of the UK leaders in presenting the eleventh environmental
exhibition of World Oceans Day on Coronation Green, Shoreham-by-Sea. Find
out what lives in the sea and on the seashore off the Sussex coast, with
exhibits hosted by local experts and enthusiasts of the undersea world. Live
lobsters and crabs, a rock pool aquarium, the whale and dolphin exhibition,
a touch table of strandline exhibits found on the shore and other
interactive displays will be on display under the marquee on the green
overlooking the River Adur by the footbridge. For the third year running the
Friends of Shoreham Beach will be providing their own displays and playing
an important role in organising the day. Allow at least an hour for an
educational exhibition for the youngest to the oldest member of the family.
Exhibitors will be able to find the time to answer questions about marine
Admission is free.
Adur World Oceans Day is run by a committee comprising representatives of
the British Marine Life Study Society, West Sussex County Council, the Sea
Watch Foundation, Friends of Shoreham Beach and other groups, with support
from Adur District Council.
World Oceans Day was declared at the Earth Summit in 1992.
> Next comes the Plan of Action which will be delayed for the thinking
> One immediate thing that strikes me is the marquee may only be half full

> The incidental objective of Adur World Oceans Day 2009 is to support other
> traders and businesses in the town by increasing the profile by holding
> prestigious events on public land. All environmental groups (but not
> trading or campaigning groups) are eligible under the World Oceans
> Day/World Environment Day banner.
> Anybody else who wants to get permission for marquee space is outside my
> remit. However, We would welcome compatible groups that are not too noisy
> (folk singers preferable to jazz bands).
> That's all for now.
